Fixing Emmiter to video
on May 27, 2006 at 7:59:46 am

I have as my background a video (AVI) of a landscape and the camera is panning from right to left. Using emmiter 'Thin Smoke Disperse 2' I would like to fix it to the landscape as the camera pans.I.E. it would look like a fire burning at a fixed point on the landscape as the camera pans past it. Anyone?.

Ive now managed to anchor the base of the emmiter to the landscape but the smoke doesnt rise verticaly it runs of in the direction of the pan.(Right to Left)

Use the offset and angle at the top of the project root to move the "PI Camera".
Use the emitter to move the emmiter.

Examples
Train is going left to right:
Move emmiter from left to right tracking the train.

Fire burning in building with camera moving around at the buliding to follow fireman:
Move the angle if camera is on an angle or leave alone.
Move offset to follow camera pans.

If there is a camera zoom, then you need to use the emmiters zoom to match.

Take care,
Jose Burgos
